Book reviews: How the FDA builds its power; Doctors’ conflicts of interest

In the current issue of Governance, David DeMortain of Université Paris-Est reviews Daniel Carpenter’s Reputation and Power: Organizational Image and Pharmaceutical Regulation at the FDA.  DeMortain says it is “likely to become a gold standard for the study of regulatory agencies.”  Read the review.  And Ian Greener of Durham University reviews Conflicts of Interest and the Future of Medicine by Marc Rodwin.  “A very good book indeed,” says Greener, which ought to be widely used to illuminate “the kinds of challenges the profession faces in relation to conflicts of interest.” Read the review.
